Electronics Arts has just announced details about the new game mode on Star Wars Battlefront DLC download. Coming from Gamescom in Germany, EA introduced Battle Station – a game mode that will come with next DLC aptly named Death Star. Players will be able to relive the epic battles from the movie franchise.
This new game mode centers on three different stages of the game that culminates with epic destruction of the Star Destroyer.
This stage of the game will be played in outer space. Rebels and the empire battle it out with their respective fighter ships.
The rebels will be piloting the X-Wings and A-Wings as they try to thin out TIE Fighters and TIE Interceptors. Upon success of the mission, the Y-Wings will join the foray and commence their bombing run on the Death Star.
This phase introduces two new hero characters. Rebels will be given a chance to run around shooting Stormtroopers on the Death Star as Chewbacca. Meanwhile, imperial soldiers can play as the bounty hunter Bossk. The main objective for the rebels in this phase is to extract a droid from the space station. While stormtroopers try their best to fend off rebels.
Finally, the third phase. This is where everything gets a tad more interesting as players battle it out again in outer space. In this phase, players get to perform the iconic bombing run from the fourth sequel, A New Hope. Rebel alliance players will be given a chance to play as Luke Skywalker aboard his Red-5 X-Wing fighter. At the same time, Lord Vader, in his TIE Advanced, will join the Imperial soldiers in an effort to thwart the rebels.
In addition to the battle station game mode, other contents will be added to the Death Star DLC as well. Players will be given new Star Cards and Blasters along with the two new hero characters, Chewbacca and Bossk. The Death Star expansion for Star Wars Battlefront will be operational for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One in September.
